Soul Vaccination is one of the Hottest Funk Bands in the PNW. This great band infuses the Stage with the greatest soul standards and has been a fixture in the Northwest music scene for over 14 years, bringing you tunes from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Earth Wind & Fire and Tower of Power.
Reason to celebrate. There's a new album and the CD release party is Friday, April 20th at the Melody Ballroom. More HERE.
The band features the mighty Hammond B-3 organ playing of Louis Pain, as well as the precision guitar playing of Max Rees. On bass is Grammy nominated producer, John Linn, and on Drums is Edwin Coleman III, always bringin' the funk and Groovin' Hard.
Portland's own Paul Creighton, Mark Wyatt, and Jeannine "Gigi" Wiggins share their soulful vocals styles. Lewis Livermore and Dave Mills carry the backbone sound of the Soul Vax horns on trumpets, with Mary Sue Tobin, Gary Harris, & Tim Bryson on saxophones.
